This Saturday’s JobReady Dade Hiring Event was considered a great success as over a hundred Dade County residents flood the Dade County High School commons area  to the booths where dozens of Retail, Wholesale, and Industrial/Manufacturing employers had booths representing their available jobs.

The event was sponsored and made possible by the Alliance for Dade, Dade County’s Industrial Development Authority, Top of Georgia, and the Northwest Georgia Joint Development Authority as an initiative to help those in Dade County struggling with the ability to find local employment.

You can watch the 3-hour livestream of the event here, featuring interviews with representatives of the attending employers and representatives of the sponsoring organizations, including Senator Jeff Mullis:
